    Not true. It is 30 days for the asylum based apps and 90 days for the rest.
    I do not have a memo or web link, however, when I went for my fingerprinting appointment I asked about the interim EAD of the processing time dragged for my husband.

    I was told that there are no facilities at any local USCIS offices for the production of interim EAD's. If your application goes beyond the 90 day time limit, you have two choices. Go to the local office and ask them to send an email to the service center to ask for them to process quickly or issue interim EAD, or call the 1 800 number directly of the service center and cut out the middle man.

    This subject is treated as an elaborate chapter titled "The quiet crisis" in Friedman's book "The world is flat". A very good read. Here is an extremely well written article on education crisis staring at the US. It also touches on the broken immigration system.

    Feel free to discuss but kindly refrain from making extreme and judgmental statements.

    The quiet crisis in US education

    By Thomas L. Friedman

    First I had to laugh. Then I had to cry. I took part in commencement this year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, one of America�s great science and engineering schools, so I had a front-row seat as the first grads to receive their diplomas came on stage, all of them PhD students. One by one the announcer read their names and each was handed their doctorate � in biotechnology, computing, physics and engineering � by the school�s president, Shirley Ann Jackson.

    The reason I had to laugh was because it seemed like every one of the newly minted PhDs at Rensselaer was foreign born. For a moment, as the foreign names kept coming � "Hong Lu, Xu Xie, Tao Yuan, Fu Tang" � I thought that the entire class of doctoral students in physics were going to be Chinese, until "Paul Shane Morrow" saved the day. It was such a caricature of what Ms Jackson herself calls "the quiet crisis" in high-end science education in this country that you could only laugh.

    Don�t get me wrong. I�m proud that our country continues to build universities and a culture of learning that attract the world�s best minds. My complaint � why I also wanted to cry � was that there wasn�t someone from the Immigration and Naturalization Service standing next to Ms Jackson stapling green cards to the diplomas of each of these foreign-born PhDs. I want them all to stay, become Americans and do their research and innovation here.

    If we can�t educate enough of our own kids to compete at this level, we�d better make sure we can import someone else�s, otherwise we will not maintain our standard of living. It is pure idiocy that Congress will not open our borders � as wide as possible � to attract and keep the world�s first-round intellectual draft choices in an age when everyone increasingly has the same innovation tools and the key differentiator is human talent. I�m serious. I think any foreign student who gets a PhD in our country � in any subject � should be offered citizenship. I want them. The idea that we actually make it difficult for them to stay is crazy.

    Compete America, a coalition of technology companies, is pleading with Congress to boost both the number of H-1B visas available to companies that want to bring in skilled foreign workers and the number of employment-based green cards given to high-tech foreign workers who want to stay here. Give them all they want! Not only do our companies need them now, because we�re not training enough engineers, but they will, over time, start many more companies and create many more good jobs than they would possibly displace. Silicon Valley is living proof of that � and where innovation happens, matters. It�s still where the best jobs will be located.

    Folks, we can�t keep being stupid about these things. You can�t have a world where foreign-born students dominate your science graduate schools, research labs, journal publications and can now more easily than ever go back to their home countries to start companies � without it eventually impacting our standard of living � especially when we�re also slipping behind in high-speed Internet penetration per capita. America has fallen from fourth in the world in 2001 to 15th today.

    My hat is off to Andrew Rasiej and Micah Sifry, co-founders of the Personal Democracy Forum. They are trying to make this an issue in the presidential campaign by creating a movement to demand that candidates focus on our digital deficits and divides. (See: Mr Rasiej, who unsuccessfully ran for public advocate of New York City in 2005 on a platform calling for low-cost wireless access everywhere, notes that "only half of America has broadband access to the Internet." We need to go from "No Child Left Behind," he says, to "Every Child Connected."

    Here�s the sad truth: 9/11, and the failing Iraq war, have sucked up almost all the oxygen in this country � oxygen needed to discuss seriously education, healthcare, climate change and competitiveness, notes Garrett Graff, an editor at Washingtonian Magazine and author of the upcoming book The First Campaign, which deals with this theme. So right now, it�s mostly governors talking about these issues, noted Mr Graff, but there is only so much they can do without Washington being focused and leading. Which is why we�ve got to bring our occupation of Iraq to an end in the quickest, least bad way possible � otherwise we are going to lose Iraq and America. It�s coming down to that choice.

    Hello everyone,

    Today 17th August, 2007 my I-485 packet was about to reach at Texas Service Center and unfortunately when I track my packet it shows �Notice Left� on USPS site, they mention they will try to deliver on Next business day. When I called at USPS , one lady picked up phone and she told it was PO Box no so we cant deliver. It is available to them to pick up but the man from USCIS might pick it up on early monday morning. Now I am worried does that mean my mailing date is Aug 17th or Aug 20th.

    SO now USCIS will accept my application or not ?? Please advise ? Any body has same situation ?

    Notice Left, August 17, 2007, 11:38 am, MESQUITE, TX 75185
    Arrival at Unit, August 17, 2007, 11:01 am, MESQUITE, TX 75149
    Acceptance, August 16, 2007, 10:09 pm, ATLANTA, GA 30320

    If ur EB2 and PD older than Jan 01, 2004 probably you have chance to refile again. During this crunch time don't trust USPS/UPS. Always use fedex...

    Hope for the best..

    I guess I should agree with Jerrome because I am going to India 2 weeks from now and My friend who recently had been to India mentioned the same. I have asked the same question to my immigration lawyer, I will post it when I get a reply.

    In mean time I have another question, My flight is from Chicago to Delhi, but I have to take a loacl flight from Miami to Chicago, all my international baggage check in's are at the Miami. My question here is should I surrender the I-94 at Miami since I am doing all my International baggage check in's or should it be in Chicago.

    Please let me know if anybody had this situation.


    Submit the I-94 when you board the flight that leave USA, in your case, Chicago, Not Miami, It is always not advisable to sumbit when you are boarding a connecting, non-Internation flight. For example, what if the International flight is cancelled or you missed, you will be in US, but have already returned your I-94 Also always have copies of all the I-94 for records.

    `(G) Aliens who have earned an advanced degree in science, technology, engineering, or math and have been working in a related field in the United States under a nonimmigrant visa during the 3-year period preceding their application for an immigrant visa under section 203(b).

    What does the above statement mean??
    So, folks who have an advanced degree from the US are exempt from the cap? Or advanced degree plus 3 yrs of work exp is required?

    Here is my reading of the amendment.

    If you look at the original bill (S2611) Section 508 reads


    (a) Aliens With Certain Advanced Degrees Not Subject to Numerical Limitations on Employment Based Immigrants-

    (1) IN GENERAL- Section 201(b)(1) (8 U.S.C. 1151(b)(1)), as amended by section 505, is amended by adding at the end the following:

    `(G) Aliens who have earned an advanced degree in science, technology, engineering, or math and have been working in a related field in the United States under a nonimmigrant visa during the 3-year period preceding their application for an immigrant visa under section 203(b).

    `(H) Aliens described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of section 203(b)(1)(A) or who have received a national interest waiver under section 203(b)(2)(B).

    `(I) The spouse and minor children of an alien who is admitted as an employment-based immigrant under section 203(b).'.


    Bingaman Amendment 4181 and 4182 on the other hand state

    Notwithstanding any other provisions of this act the language in Title V Sec. 501 under the heading ``(2) VISAS FOR SPOUSES AND CHILDREN'' is null and void and the following shall be applicable in lien thereof.
    ``(A) IN GENERAL.--Except as provided in subparagraph (B), immigrant visas issued on or after October 1, 2004, to spouses and children of employment-based immigrants shall not be counted against the numerical limitation set forth in paragraph (1).
    ``(B) NUMERICAL LIMITATION.--The total number of visas issued under paragraph (1)(A) and paragraph (2), excluding such visas issued to aliens pursuant to section 245B or section 245C of the Immigration and Nationality Act, may not exceed 650,000 during any fiscal year.

    ************************************************** ****

    Reading S2611 Section 508 in conjunction with SA4811 and SA4812 specifically shows that STEM + 3 applicants as well as their spouses and children are not subject to any caps. On the other had the troubling part is that those not covered by STEM+3 will have 450,000 principal applicant slots and therefore only 200,000 spouse and children slots. This discrepancy arises from the fact that Bingaman multiplied 290,000 by 1.2 to arrive at his figure while S2611 allows for 450,000 principal applicants in the 1st 10 years to remove backlog.

    SA 4188 is not currently available for reading and it will be interesting to see what change has been made to the language in 508(a)(1)(G) to allow all STEM +3 to be exempt. It would also be interesting to see whether language in Sec 508(b)(3)(III) has been changed to reflect the changes in 508(a)(1)(G)
    Note that if both these sections are changed to allow all STEM+3 then labor certification too becomes easier. Hopefully changes here can provide some relief from Bingaman's torpedo.

    I would appreciate comments as my analysis may be wrong.

    This is all India specific and specific to EB2. I did not add years2006 and 2007 as my PD is in 2005. But I did do it upto dec 2005.

    1. You can expect the spill over from EB1 in big way
    2. You can expect spillover from EB2 ROW in a big way

    This should help clear backlog atleast upto 2004 cases. However the interfiling from EB3 to EB2 could stop the backlog from being reduced.

    Can a Canadian Citizen work in the USA without a visa ? How easy is that ?
    If you are going to stay 2 yrs in Canada, you might as well spend 1 more yr and become a Canadian citizen.

    I actually have a similar question. I am in the exact same situation. The question is that in this case if you have an H1 stamped in your passport, is it ok to travel to US on that H1 ? or would you need a B2 tourist visa to travel ?

    I am asking since technically you are employed by same employer but you are getting paid by Candian payroll not US Payroll.

    My case is some what similar. My h1b extension packet was returned for lack of filing fee but before we could re-apply my old h1b expired. We applied however but USCIS approved h1B petition and didn't grant me h1b status i.e didn't issue I-94. I am required to leave the country for stamping.

    Now we are filing nunc-pro-tunc petition essential pleading with USCIS it was no fault of my mine. You can do gooogle on this.

    Okay, I applied for an H1 transfer late June 2006 on my own. Started at new job after receipt. Late August went on maternity leave. Came back to work in December. During maternity leave, my application was sent back due to wrong fee and no LCA (I didn't use a lawyer and was given somewhat bad advice.) By the time I did a re-application for transfer it was April 2007 (with the help of lawyers, this time). My H1 expired (6 years) near the end of June. But I was told I was okay as long as I was pending. Mid-July got a request for evidence with a date of September 20th being the latest date I can send in the stubs, tax returns, etc.

    1. Am I currently out of status or okay because of the RFE?
    2. If I apply for F-1 status now (thinking of a second Masters or PhD) will I need to send in the evidence for the H1B before that or will that not matter? It will take me a while to get all of the evidence, but I don't have time to wait in regards to getting the F-1 for school this Fall.

    My lawyers suggested leaving the country, but I am fearful of that? Any suggestions, answers, advice?

    Did you LC mention the requirements for your job. Unless it emphasized that a Masters was needed for your job profile on an LC, I140 will be denied. File an MTR right away along with a new I140 uner EB3. Beleive in god and ur priority dates will remain the same as they were. Make sure that the new I140 under EB3 matches your LC.

    Good Luck

    I see a lot of people flocking into "Orkut". How about incorporating a dose of IV through orkut if some of us are already there? What is more important is, making people aware of the consequences they might have to face, even if they havent filed for their GC yet.

    You can take Infopass to findout, wheather this notice is by mistake - if so you are out of problem. Otherwise, I don't think, there is any other option then getting it done, you can keep on extending till your wife comes here.

    Take enough precautions so that finger ridges are properly scanned next time to avoid such calls. A small cut in fingers can delay legible prints for months. Sometimes skin diseases are problems. In newborns, finger ridges are not developed and it can happen with some grown ups. If you rub fingers against rough surface before FP, FP will not come properly.

    The staff taking FP does visual scanning and runs preliminary program to verify whether scans are OK or not. With image scanning, number of repeat FP notice due to unreadbale prints is significantly reduced - so the notice you have received might be a mistake.

    I talked to the contact person at

    According to him They won�t vote on any immigration bills till after the election.

    So it seems it will be after november only.

    But look at the positive side. We have more time to contact the law makers.
